Definitely tough for me (out of shape) - but the mud, snow and ice make it extra tricky coming down. I need to get some hiking poles! Great views of a snowy Taos...

Nice hike - did this with some friends and our dogs. No real view at the peak, but nice views on the return loop back down (we went counter-clockwise).

Definitely on the harder side of moderate, but the trail was fairly easy to follow and very few people. The views all throughout the hike are wonderful.

Harder than I anticipated-underestimated the gain in a short distance. Great views of Taos; lots of terrain change. I’m glad I did it!

Great hike! We took our 5-year old and he did good. Lots of breaks were needed on the way up as it’s quite a climb. The view at the peak is ok - not as great as some of the others.

This is a pretty, view of the city hike with lots of switchbacks and elevation gain. A bit rocky. Easy access and cell phone signal throughout. Accidentally took the loop instead of turning right to stay on the out and back.

Very exposed and steep to start. Peak is anti climactic. Good views of Rio Grande toward top

Trail is in good condition. Some icy/snowy spots but did it all in hiking boots and was fine. Enjoy!

Great views of Taos! Some snow in spots, but nothing a good pair of hiking shoes can't handle. I'd turn around at the switchback before this map indicates the route ends (trail keeps going past the "end" indicated by All Trails).

HikingNo shade

Nice views throughout hike! No shade so wear a hat and bring sunscreen / water. We stopped at the top of the ~1/2 point, which has some nice sitting rocks to take in the views. Would be a nice place to turn around if you are looking for 3.5 mile hike.

HikingNo shade

Good views throughout hike. The waypoint would honestly be a good place to stop, enjoy, and turn back around unless you just really want a good workout as there aren’t really views from the peak! The trees are taller up there and provide shade/ block the view. I was expecting to get there and see a 360 view but it was just less of the same views we had been seeing. Overall, good one time hike for Taos!

Some fairly steep portions, especially at the beginning, but plenty of switchbacks. Exposed, bring sunscreen. Traffic noise. Nice views. Nice area to relax at the top.

Fun hike with a nice view of Taos towards the end... Be prepared for a little workout if you’re not accustomed to hiking an incline. To put it in perspective, my phone registered that I had climbed 30 flights of stairs at about the 2/3rds mark... Worth it, and you can always turn around if it’s to much.

Absolutely beautiful trail with views of Taos. It was just challenging enough.
